National Mosque, Kuala Lumpur Reviews
Its a must visit place in KL. Largest Mosque of Malaysia. Irrespective of religion, everyone have an access over here. Non Islamic Ladies members need to wear a special veil given at the entrance of the Mosque. No specific restrictions to take pictures inside except the main prayer hall. MUST VISIT and Please don't Miss. Thank you so much Malaysia for the access given to everyone irrespective to one's religion. IMPORTANT NOTE: KL Bird Park, Botanical Garden and Merdeka Square is very close to National Mosque. So one can plan it accordingly.
I believe the biggest mosque in Malaysia but one you can visit as a tourist and or non believer. There are certain opening hours when you can visit. As it's a mosque you need to be covered but even if you have shorts, t-shirt etc they give you a big purple robe so you are covered up. You are now allowed in main prayer room but you can look into it. There are also volunteers on hand to answer any questions you may have on Islam. This is a good place to combine with the botanical gardens.
Absolutely beautiful mosque. Saw a couple of massage chairs and free WiFi sign. Easy to reach, there’s a bus stop exactly infront of the mosque. It’s surprisingly cool inside the mosque probably due to the marble floor but once you go outside you can feel the scorching humidity. Luckily there was a food cart that sells some delicious snacks and not so tasty but refreshing cold juices.
The best features of the mosque are the 73 meters high minarets and its 16 pointed star concrete which is its main roof. There are many meanings to the design of the mosque. The main roof's design was inspired from the idea of an open umbrella while the minarets were like a folded umbrella. The concrete main roof utilizes the concept of folding plates in order to obtain larger space at the main gathering hall.
The National Mosque of Malaysia never fails to impress you how modernism is portrayed beautiful on a mosque breaking the typical stereotype on how a common mosque is usual stands. This mosque is able to hold up to 15000 congregants. The perimeter of the mosque is covered by gardens. The roof of the mosque resemble an open umbrella and not forgetting the iconic tall minaret. I would recommend to visit this mosque after or before visiting the Islamic Arts Museum. This mosque is situated opposite Kuala Lumpur Station.
